Dear Southwood Community:  

I want to send you a warm welcome to Southwood Junior/Senior High School.  The years your student attends SHS are an exciting time full of learning, tradition, and fun.

We are proud of the academic achievement of our students, and we look forward to continuing to prepare for them for whatever their passion and potential drives them to do.  College-bound students can take advanced placement and dual credit courses to prepare them for post-secondary education.  Data obtained from the Indiana Department of Education show that our graduates enjoy success in post-secondary education because of our rigorous preparation.  Students can choose from a variety of elective classes to pursue their interests.  We also have a vocational preparatory program for those students who are interested in attending vocational school and earning certification upon graduating.  In fact, roughly one-third of our juniors and seniors split time between Southwood and Heartland Career Center.  We are proud of our students’ accomplishments!  

In addition to our academic success, we provide a number of artistic and athletic opportunities.  Whether it’s participating in music, visual art; our students have many outlets to showcase their creative talents.  Our athletes learn the values of teamwork, competitiveness, and effort.  We have seen a lot of success on the playing field, in the arts, and in academics.

Thank you for choosing Southwood Junior/Senior High School.  I am excited to be the principal and to work with families in our area!  

Best regards, 

Andrew McDaniel Principal
Southwood Jr/Sr High School
